Time may change me, But I can't change time

Today I put away the diapers… They reside in the closet next to my slings, which now also never get used. *Sniff sniff*

I guess I am happy, my youngest is now 2 ½, and it is time for him to be out of diapers and such. But, this is the first time in 6 years that we haven’t had a baby in the house. No diapers, no slings, no nurslings. It’s sad for me in some way because I am so used to having a little one around. Now my “baby” isn’t really a baby at all.

I know DH is a little nervous about this status… He knows that it won’t be long before I seek to remedy it, even if it is not a conscious decision to do so. Seriously, I find myself lovin’ on babies of friends more than usual these days. Allah help me when school starts this fall(for so many reasons, but that is another post in itself)!

awwww macha Allah
babies.

the only thing that stirs my maternal instinct is the smell of a baby who has just had a bath and gotten baby lotion and powder. then i want ten kids. other than that zilch. Nice Husband is worried.

My youngest is 1 1/2 and i too started feeling like i want another baby again. this happens whenever i hold a newborn, subhanAllah. But i want to wait another year inshaAllah to have a small break.
